A major force in the underground dance scene of the past 30 years, Archie Burnett was a close friend of Willi Ninja (1961-2006) and co-originator of freestyle forms Voguing and Waacking. This class is an introduction to Waacking and Voguing. Waacking is a style of dance that was birthed in the early 1970’s underground dance scene and surfaced on the ever ground-breaking Soul Train, along with Voguing, a dance popularized in the underground gay scene. This workshop is applicable and accessible to all.

NY Theatre Guide on Tetris: “Musilova’s choreography plays on our “cravings for success and the desire to fit in.” It is a monumental work and is definitely one of the most riveting performances I have experienced in the last year. The dance language created for this offering was complex and exhilarating. The four dancers were enmeshed in a grid of interlocking bodies that connect and disconnect at an incredible pace.”
